As the new year quickly approaches, many of us find ourselves reflecting on what transpired over the past 12 months, as well as thinking about what changes we want to implement to make 2018 an even better year.
These New Year’s resolutions may include eating more healthily, getting more exercise, being more mindful, living more eco-consciously, getting together more often with friends and family, and devoting more time to a spiritual practice. We have an amazing array of advertisers that are ready, willing and able to assist you with your health and wellness goals. Inside each issue of Natural Awakenings OKC, you will also find inspiring and informative articles on everything from nutrition to fitness to creative expression to personal growth to sustainable living, which, hopefully, you will also find helpful in your quest to make 2018 a healthy year mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually!
Speaking of positive changes, there has been a welcome addition here at Natural Awakenings OKC. I am excited to introduce Co-publisher Carla Lambe, the mother of three, who became very interested in health and wellness in order to best care for her family. Carla spent years researching ways to naturally heal the body and mind; part of that journey included reading Natural Awakenings OKC from cover to cover each month and visiting several local healing arts practitioners. She has become extremely passionate about the health and wellness industry and is excited to help spread the word in her new role as co-publisher.
I am greatly looking forward to working with Carla to make the magazine the best it can be.
Wishing you a healthy and happy new year, and remember, “Your health is your wealth.”
May you sail in the direction of your soul’s purpose and enjoy the bounty of what life has to offer.
